Day 31: Camino de Santiago legends that you may not have heard

The whole world knows about Santo Domingo and the chicken that sang after being roasted. While we don't want to take away from this and other well-known legends, today we'd like to share some lesser-known, but equally interesting and entertaining, tales. Autumn is story time season.
